A real feather in Bellevue's cap, this museum presents sophisticated exhibits on craft and design, with a focus on regional artists. Past exhibitions have included High Fiber Diet—focusing on underexposed media in contemporary art—and Modern Twist: Contemporary Japanese Bamboo Art. The dramatic puzzle piece–looking building, which really stands out in Bellevue's somewhat uninspired downtown core, is worth the trip alone. Tours happen daily at 1 pm and
workshops for kids, teens, and adults are offered regularly. In late July, the museum hosts the BAM ARTSfair, a prestigious, high-end street festival held at Bellevue Square and Bellevue Arts Museum.
